sound meets bytes
  • I have a new toy: notify-send.
  • I need to pratice guitar playing more often.
so let's try to combine these points:
  • install needed software: notification-daemon, libnotify-bin (contains notify-send).
  • find an image.
  • set up a cronjob.
cronjob (wrapped over several lines for better legibility):
0 17 * * * DISPLAY=:0.0 notify-send \
	-t 0 \
	-u critical \
	-h "int:x:1680" -h "int:y:0" \
	-i /home/gregoa/data/sound/trio\ infernal/triologo_square_border_transparent.png \
	"Trio Infernal says:" \
	"Heute schon Gitarre gespielt?"
(for details check man 1 notify-send) result (at the top right corner of my screen):


& yes, this is not my only use case for notify-send :)
